Conclusion

Starting with the Basic Benchmark, the server showed reliable performance, managing a solid 158 MB/s average across three tests for I/O speed. Moreover, it delivered varied results when it came to upload and download speeds worldwide. The cherry on top? It reached a super low latency of just 1.01ms on Speedtest.net.

Moving to the Yabs Performance Bench, the results were mixed in the fio Disk Speed Tests. Depending on the block size, speeds varied significantly from 4k to 1m. For example, in the smallest block size of 4k, speeds hit 16.04 MB/s. Jump up to a 512k block, soaring to 196.21 MB/s, with the 1m block size test slightly edging out at 196.37 MB/s. These figures underline the server’s robust disk performance.

Then, there’s the Geekbench 6 Benchmark Test, which also turned out impressive scores—984 for single core and 3185 for multicore. These scores highlight the server’s power in handling heavy computational demands.

To wrap up, the Zenlayer UK London Compute-Optimized server stands out for its muscle in processing and network performance. It shines in tasks needing a lot of processor power, proving it’s built for heavy-duty computing. It also offers great network speed across various countries. However, improving access to certain media platforms could further broaden its appeal to users, making it even more versatile.
